history

s t y l e m e e t s p e o p l e

SMP/Space M Projects, Inc. was established in NEW YORK in 1986 withvision and passion for introducing stylish lifestyle products and personal gifts designed mostly by American designers, craftsmen and artists for the Japanese market.

Buying and distributing designed-in-USA products for the Japanese market in the past years, we have been
known for our creative buying and merchandising in home decoration, table tops, bath & home fragrance, stationery and kids stuff. Focusing on the USA market, at the April show of EX・TRACTS 2001 in New York, we launched and introduced our original brand, " DEAR PEAR " collection for bath and home fragrance along with our selection of the imported items mainly from Japan. We were delighted to be selected as among the finalists to be nominated for "Best Overall Products Award" at our first debut EX.TRACTS show.

And then we had our first Accent on Design Show in the New York Gift Fair in January, 2002 and received fabulous responses from the buyers and press.

In the Spring, 2003, we moved from Tribeca to Flatiron district to open our new showroom/buying office at the New York Gift Building, 225 Fifth Avenue.

In the summer of 2005, we relocated our showroom / buying office to "7 WEST NEW YORK" - the new premium gift mart in New York, focusing on our own original BATH & HOMEFRAGRANCE collection, Japan Lifestyle Design products and International Designers Collection.
